Need a new challenge? Looking to make some new friends? Feeling inspired to get to know Shakespeare a bit more?

Our adult classes are the perfect way to introduce, or rediscover, the inspiring world of Shakespeare. Together we'll explore why his remarkable plays are still being performed 400 years on.

Delivered by theatre professionals, with regular visits from our main-house production’s creatives and actors, GSC’s practical evening classes are designed to help you discover The Bard in a fun and supportive environment. We explore Shakespeare’s great plays through close reading, group discussion and practical exercises in our professional rehearsal room. Each term culminates in a celebration of the term’s discoveries.

No experience of Shakespeare or acting necessary and all ages welcome. This is not an acting class but there will be tea and biscuits! Just bring yourself and a desire to learn.


In preparation for our open-air production of Romeo & Juliet in June and July, this 6 week term will be exploring some of the forgotten and often cut scenes from Shakespeare's great love story. Did you know there are characters like Potpan, Peter and Lord Capulet's cousin; as well as scenes with musicians and watchmen discovering the tragedy in the tomb before the ending? Discover all this and more!

Dates: 16 April - 21 May 
Fee: £105 (for 6 weeks)
Times: Tuesdays 7pm-9pm
Venue: GreenArk, Lido Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 1HB.

"We’ve had such fun exploring this play with Rob, TBNTH is such a perfect forum to start unpacking these dazzling texts and I’m really grateful for the opportunity which GSC has created for us."

"A very BIG THANK YOU for making this term’s sessions SO interesting and inspirational." 

“We look at Shakespeare’s choice of words, their sound, their order on the page and the visual images created – this helps create a deeper understanding of the work and also gives you an insight and appreciation into Shakespeare’s skill as a writer.” 

“I am able to appreciate and enjoy productions of Shakespeare better.”
